The conference was established in 2004 by the Institute of Metal Forming (Institut für Metallformung) at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany.2).
Initially, the conference was called International Workshop on “Magnetism and Metallurgy”3) with the acronym WMM, by which the conference is referred to nowadays, even though the full name was changed to “International Conference on Magnetism and Metallurgy”.
The conferences in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 were held at Department of Material Science and Engineering, Ghent University, Belgium.
The conference in 2014 was hosted by Wolfson Centre for Magnetics at Cardiff University, UK. There were around 80 participants, with 28 invited speakers from 14 countries, including Europe, Japan, China, USA and Brazil.6)
Apart from academia and research institutions, the conference is usually well attended by producers of magnetic materials7): Arnold Magnetic Technologies, ThyssenKrupp Stahl, Voestalpine, Tempel Steel, Magnequench, Vacuumschmelze, ArcelorMittal, Aperam, Tata Steel, AK Steel Corporation, CD Wälzholz, NLMK, US Steel, Baosteel, Höganäs, China Steel, Cogent.
